I haven't been on this site in a while. But was my shop actually in a book? I have been working on it a little lately since winter is coming on and the roof blew off last year I put a dormer on it to gain a little more headroom for lighting (used to be about 6 foot high). But haven't been working on much car stuff lately.

Thanks, I'm always surprised when people like my dirty little shop as much as I do...seems folks like things spotless and new nowdays.

Maybe I'll have to change the flag orientation (I didn't know it had a proper direction when hanging that way. And I sold the old pan/shovel about a year ago.

Actually, the flag in this photo is displayed correctly (http://www.ushistory.org/betsy/flagetiq.html):



...& I really like that "skylight" - any hints how to add one to a shed type roof?

I think the two coolest shops I have ever seen on this board have been this one, and OldCarGuys.

From what I was told in college was that it is a display of your genitals, basically saying, I will kuck you. Mind you this was the most irreverent professor at the school brought it up when somebody in class waved it at another student.

Awesome.. those rooms have so much atmosphere I can literally smell the old bearing grease and wood.

If there was a top 5 here we would only have to figure out number 2, 3, 4 and 5.

That crane/support on top of the louver press is ingenious.

Great shop, my favorite "character" shop.
